This article is more than 7 years old.

A pediatrician facing federal child pornography charges has also been associated with two Massachusetts summer camps for children.

Dr. Richard Keller, the former medical director of Phillips Academy in Andover and a Boston Children's Hospital endocrinologist, was arrested last week. Federal prosecutors allege the 56-year-old Keller purchased more than 50 DVDs of child pornography online. During a search of his home, authorities say they found more than 500 photographs and 60 to 100 DVDs of child pornography.

Keller was involved for nearly three decades with Camp Joslin in Charlton, a camp for boys with diabetes, and also served at and Camp Mah-Kee-Nac in Lenox.

Spokespeople for both camps tell The Boston Globe they are not aware of any complaints against Keller.

Keller is scheduled to be in court Wednesday.
